The Paul Yuzyk Award for Multiculturalism recognizes exceptional contributions to multiculturalism and integration of newcomers to Canada. After six years of honouring remarkable Canadians, the award is expanding to recognize a greater number of deserving individuals and groups.
A new Youth category will recognize outstanding young Canadians (aged 15 to 24) who are emerging leaders in their school or community and who promote a welcoming and inclusive multicultural society in Canada.
